Save the date! It’s Saturday 28th March and you’re going to learn all about BUGS! 1pm—3pm; Kensington Gardens Reserve. Meet at the main park (the giant climbing dome)
Bring: Your hat, sunscreen, sensible shoes, water bottle!
We will be setting up a Citizen Science experiment, run by School of Ants! Citizen Science is where people who aren’t trained scientists get to do real science! This project is building a map of ants all over Australia and studying what types of food they are attracted to. So, we are going to run this experiment in Kensington Gardens Reserve.
You’ll be learning about insects with Erinn (who just LOVES her bugs!) and seeing what we can find in the park, while learning to identify invertebrates.
Then we will check back with our experiment and record what ants we find… the next bit is exciting… we will collect the ants for SciWorld to send to the School of Ants project who will add these to the national database. Yes, you are real scientists!
Once you’ve learnt how to conduct the experiment, you can try it at home and see how different the results are!
Cost: $5 per person to help us cover the cost of materials. Payable cash on the day. Adults you can join in too!
